The 1975 release ‘Frail State of Mind’

A sure indication that Matty and the lads aren’t done surprising us yet.

After the explosive punk-leaning ‘People’, The 1975 show just why you should never place a bet on what they’re gonna do next.

Once again highlighting their penchant for experimentation, new track ‘Frail State of Mind’, the latest taste of their highly anticipated fourth album ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, is a soaring electronic number, almost reminiscent in its melodic glitchy production to the latter parts of ‘How To Draw/Petrichor’ or ‘I Like America & America Likes Me’ from last year’s critically and commercially acclaimed third LP ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’.

Detailing feelings of social anxiety, there’s elements of ‘TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME’-esque pop hooks ringing throughout, delicately transformed with an ambient house-y twist. Also could Matty’s little repeat of “ring” after “I watched it ring” become this year’s “selling petrol”?

An example of how The 1975 don’t need to come out screaming to instantly hook you in (as much as we love it when they do), ‘Frail State of Mind’ is a sure indication that Matty and the lads aren’t done surprising us yet.
